stamps in Haarlem

This year, the comics festival of Haarlem, which is planned for the coming weekend, is largely devoted to comics in Russia.  In order to reflect this in the festival's look and feel, its designers have opted for a faux soviet look, full of heroic statues and cyrillic lettering.  And they created a series of fake stamps for the main navigation elements in the site.  The stamps, which are designed to bring to mind the colorful propaganda that USSR stamps were, also evoke their examples by each featuring one of Haarlem's many architectural wonders.  We can only hope sets an example for other festivals...
